Those comments all sound reasonable to me. The only reason I broke
out the --send-dirs and --no-implicit-dirs options was because they
were orthogonal to what I was doing and could potentially also apply
to situations where the user was specifing various SRC filenames
on the command line. But it's certainly fine to have --files-from turn
those on automatically.
